Lady in Red

img_6986

I recently attended a friend’s wedding and wanted to share the dress I wore because I felt so amazing in it! The color, the shape, the lace… I literally loved everything about this dress. For this event I went with a more classic look with pearls, read heels, and a red lip. It will also make a great rewear for the upcoming holidays paired with dark tights and boots, XOXO.

Lularoe

If you don’t own Lula yet then you are seriously missing out!!!

Lularoe is a clothing company that carries affordable items you can easily dress up or dress down. They are known for their funky fun prints and very original pieces. What you are getting is probably unlike anything your friends will have because Lularoe only produces a small amount of each item in a specific print. My favorite pieces so far are the (soft/buttery/comfortable/amazing) leggings and the (versatile/flowy/comfy/amazing) maxi skirts. Check out the above photos to see how I like to style my Lula and access their website here to find a consultant in your area, XOXO.

September Favorites

Essence Sun Club Matte Bronzing Powder

I have been to Ulta twice this month to get color matched on new foundations and each time I have been recommended a shade that is too light. Needless to say I needed a little extra bronzing this month and this one was a life saver. Pretty much nothing beats a coconut fragranced face powder, am I right?!

Smashbox Photofinsh Pore Minimizing Primer

Don’t underestimate the power of a high end primer! This was my first and I love what it does for my skin… fills in pores and evens out the texture. I don’t use it on my whole face, just the parts that need a little extra love like my t-zone and areas that I have scarring from acne.

Essence Sheer & Shine Lipstick

I tend to have a heavy hand with makeup. I also tend to LOVE vampy lip shades for fall. Enter this product!!! There is literally no way you can overdo it with this lipstick and you will always get a nice, deep shade. It gives off a your-lips-but-better vibe with a sheer wash of color that is easy to build up and super comfortable to wear.

The Gifts of Imperfection

I featured this on my Fall Reading List post a few weeks back as a book I wanted to read up this season. Well, it was not at all difficult to get through! I’d recommend this book to anyone looking for inspiration in their own well-being. Brene Brown has a way of explaining her fascinating work on living a Wholehearted life in easy to relate to ways.

Old  Navy Striped Boat-Neck Tee

Picture this long sleeve tee with cozy black leggings, knee high boots, a warm wooly scarf, and Starbucks in hand. I mean, could it be anymore seasonly appropriate?! I got it in red, too :).

August Favorites

Bad Moms: If you haven’t seen it yet, you need to!!! Even my husband loved it.. don’t tell him I told you 🙂 . I haven’t laughed so hard at a movie in a really long time.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer: Super full coverage at an insanely affordable cost… what more could you ask for?!

Loreal Paris Brow Stylist Definer: I love the small tip on this applicator and that it comes in such a wide variety of shades. The product stays put all day and gives your brows a natural look.

Lularoe: My most recent obsession!!! I LOVE Lularoe. It is a clothing company that makes and sells adorable, comfy, and fun pieces all while empowering women and encouraging them to love their own bodies. Stay tuned for an upcoming post showcasing my most recent purchases.

Lose It!: I have used this app since the beginning of the year to manage my weight and have successfully kept off 24 pounds. If you’re looking to get fit I would highly recommend this app. I’ve used others in the past and this one is my favorite, XOXO.

Spring Shopping

Does anyone else sense a theme going on with my blog lately?! SPRING!!! I can’t get enough of prepping for the new season. This weekend I did a little shopping specifically to vamp up my spring wardrobe.

And I am so in love with everything I got…
